Anxiety Counseling for Perfectionists

How many times a day do you struggle with those sneaky little thoughts that sabotage you?

Intrusive thinking is like that annoying song you cannot get out of your head.

These thoughts might be telling you:

  • I will never be pretty enough, cool enough, friendly enough, smart enough, or strong enough.
  • What if this social group thinks I am weird?
  • I am not qualified for this job, so why bother applying for it?
  • If I ask for help, then I am weak.
  • I cannot trust others to accomplish this task my way, so I will do it myself.
  • If I put myself first, then I am selfish so my needs come last.

If any of these statements or any statement you may be experiencing are similar in nature, then you have come to the right place.

Putting yourself first may seem impossible.

One of the biggest statements I hear from my clients is, “I don’t have time for my own needs as I’m too busy helping everyone else and don’t want to disappoint anyone.”

But let me ask you one question, how often do you disappoint yourself and why does this not matter to you?

Your thoughts will tell you that putting yourself first is selfish; this is a valid thought. However, is this honestly a true thought or is this is a societal/cultural thought that has pressured you in to thinking this way?

When working with me, I value you as you come. The ideal outcome is for you to embrace yourself, flaws and all. Perfectionism is just a word and what looks “perfect” varies for everyone. One benefit of counseling is learning the difference between a true thought and an imposter thought. You will learn how your mood can affect your thoughts and affect your behavior. You will learn how to put you first and give yourself the permission to be who you are.

Together, I will help you learn:

how to forgive yourself

You can never obtain the unobtainable, and I will increase your self-awareness of the mind and body connection.

how to let go of perfectionism

You will learn how to separate the need of perfection from a sense of self or identification.

how to be okay with mistakes

It is okay to make mistakes and fail. This in turn does not mean you are a failure. 

In the words of Rocky Balboa:

“The world is not all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I do not care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. But it ain’t about how hard life can hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; because that is how winning is done. If you now your worth, then go and get what your worth.”

My end goal is to have a client know their worth and know that who they are, flaws and all, is good enough and always will be.
